This was more of a neighborhood than a campground. Immaculate grass and trees. Lots of shade. The green grass was kept that way with pop up sprinklers, hence, no tents. However, they did accommodate our small tent on a plot of grass that did not have a sprinkler. All streets and sites are paved and it looks like a neighborhood due to the many permanent residents. Nice facilities which were kept very clean. The "clubhouse" has a pool table, ping pong table, TV and computer with internet. We stayed here for our daily excursions to the National Parks, so it's not like we were sitting around our camper and tent each day. I am not a fan of this type of campground but it served the purpose well. The staff was very cordial.

State Park is rather spread out. We stayed here as an overnight on our way through. It's about 15 minutes south of the interstate. Though the bath rooms were pretty clean, some were starting to show their age. Good value. We would stay here again

Nice park! We used this as an overnight on our way through. Large park with lots of older, mature hardwood trees! Plenty of space between sites. For $20 we got water and electric. We were only 60 seconds walk from the bath house. Interestingly, one side was the men's and women's bathroom with sinks and toilets. On the other side of the building were 5 or 6 unisex showers. Each shower had a door directly to the outside. Each shower room was large, but required the dreaded quarters to operate. Nice place. If we lived in the area, we would definitely come here.

From the interstate, this is about a 15 to 20 minute drive. This is a wonderful campground and lake combination. On the downside, there are 3 things you need to know. First, you better have everything you need, because there are zero stores around. Two, you better have a toilet on board or hope you don't need a bathroom in the middle of the night. They lock the bathrooms at 9 each night. You're forced to the dreaded "vault toilets" should the need arise between 9pm and 6am. Lastly, right before you enter the state park, you drive through what looks like a pretty run-down, nasty area, which could lead the power-that-be to the bathroom locking decision. Regardless, we felt safe in the campground and were impressed by its beauty and value, as well as the campground hosts. The bathrooms were impeccable. Large, clean, and well taken care of. We used this as an overnight site, but we would stay here again.

Tried to get into Wahweap but they were full. This campground has some shade. However, if they are busy, you'll probably not get any. We did get a site with a nice shade tree. We stayed 3 nights. The bathrooms facilities were clean. Some were very nice. One large bathroom facility is beginning to show it's age. But is was never in disorder. Our small tent at some point just about blew away during one day while we were gone. Staff saw it (they commented on it the next day), but did nothing! That was a disappointment. This campground served our purpose as a home base while we went on daily trips to Lake Powell and the Grand Canyon.

Tried to get into Dead Horse State Park, but they were full. We called Riverside Oasis but they were not very friendly on the phone and wanted to charge the full cost of a second site for our small tent. Canyonlands represented a good compromise between the two. LOADS of shade (thankfully), and wonderfully clean restrooms. We didn't spend any time here during the day as we were out four wheeling and seeing the National Parks. The staff was very helpful. The only downside to this campground is like so many other privately run campgrounds, the sites are one on top of the other. For the money, we got wonderful staff, clean bathrooms, electricity, water and great shade. The proximity of the sites keeps me from giving it more stars. For what we needed (a home base), Canyonlands served the purpose. I don't think I would have been happy sitting by my camper in this campground though.

We stayed here 3 nights. One night we went into downtown Denver on their metro. It's only a 10 minute drive to the nearest station. From here we also drove down to Pikes Peak. Only took about an hour or so to get there. Very nice campground. Lots of space between sites. Our loop had Wi-Fi and electric. We also placed a small tent on our site. Fantastic views of the mountains and lake. The bathrooms were incredibly clean. Showers use quarters which was new to us. The nightly rate seems like a good deal, but you have to pay a park fee of $7 per day if you come and go through the park entrance. That, plus the cost of showers increased the price to more along the lines of $30 per day. It's hard to complain though, great views, great location, clean bathrooms, and lots of room! We'd definitely stay here again.

Very nice park. We arrived after the park office had closed. The campground host was very helpful. A beautiful lake and area. We chose a "Prime" site which provided water, electric and lake front view. Large sites with little shade. Bathrooms were very clean. The only downside to the bathrooms was the lack of some type of ventilation to move the air within. Even a giant exhaust fan would have helped. We would definitely stay here again. We used this as an overnight stay. It's about 20 miles from the interstate.

Reasonably priced for a quick overnight stay. This is basically a "Big Rig" Parking Lot with hook-ups. There is one small patch of grass and a tree between each parking place. On the up side, the bathroom facilities (which require a magnetic card) are incredibly clean. The campground is very secure. There is a St. Louis metro stop at the casino. Security will take you to and from both the casino and the metro stop. We camped here in a pop-up. The passing traffic from the interstate was pretty loud. The lighting from the security lights throughout the grounds are VERY bright! I'd stay here only as an overnighter, but we are not casino people.

Deep in the mountains of WV. Not near anything and is therefore a destination unto itself. Tight, twisting roads to get there from I-79. But - well worth a week or weekend of relaxation in the WV wilderness. Great hiking, biking, and decent fishing. The campground is well spread out and so shaded in the valley, that at 6pm, you think it's 9 or 10pm! Beautiful place!

Most everything has already been said. I would strongly urge people to get reservations. This is a very nice campground and there aren't many other choices for the area. Though it's large, all of the sites are usually taken! The weekend we were there, a Track and Field tournament was held on the grounds. Thousands of spectators and contestants, yet the campground and bath houses remained clean!

Nice campground. We were here for two nights while son was part of a Soccer tourney in Cincinnati. Took us about 45 mins to reach north central Cincinnati. Nothing great. I could tell there were a lot of people here for the weekend as a destination campground. I would stay here again.

The people here are the kind you want to deal with. They were incredibly wonderful and helpful! Stayed two nights in a 36' motorhome. Had a few problems with mechanicals and they were right there with any assistance. Famously clean bathrooms, movie night for the kids, and shade to boot! The only thing I'd change is how they park all the campers and rvs back to back. It makes for more money, but a crowded campground. This campground is about 35 miles west of St. Louis and 12 miles west of Six Flags. A nice place to stay for the weekend!

Stayed here one night in a 36' motorhome. There are two campgrounds. First was full, so we stayed in the second. There was a total of about 5 families in this large state park campground. Very quiet, very shaded. Just what we like! The main downside was the lack of cleanliness in the bathrooms. Very old and showing it! We would not take a shower here. Limbs all over the sidewalk, and parking pads. What a shame, an otherwise nice park!
